In DC Insurrection Case, Hodgkins To Plead Guilty June 2 As Garret Miller To Get Offer By June 9

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Podcast Song
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

FEDERAL COURT, May 28 – Minutes into a break in the impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate, accused insurrectionist Domenic Pezzola was ordered detained until trial by Magistrate Judge Robin M. Meriweather. Inner City Press live tweeted it, below. There was an appeal.

  On May 26, months after the DC Circuit's decision in US v. Munchel, DDC Judge Carl J. Nichols a held status conference on Garret Miller, who has been detained for four and a half months and to whom the US says it is preparing to offer a plea. Inner City Press live tweeted it here:  (and podcast here)

Now on May 28, note of a "plea agreement" - that is, a guilty plea -- in another #insurrectionBlues case: "NOTICE OF HEARING as to PAUL ALLARD HODGKINS: A Plea Agreement Hearing is set for 6/2/2021, at 11:00 AM, by video, before Judge Randolph D. Moss. The parties shall use the same link for connecting to the hearing."

AUSA Kelley: We are close to being able to make a plea offer to Mr. Miller. We ask for 45 days.

Judge Nichols: What about discovery?

AUSA Kelley: We've in the process of getting him the initial tranche through what we call our Fast Track

From the docket: "The Court was advised on April 29, 2021 that GARRET MILLER, who is currently detained, has been transported to the local jurisdiction... the Court has confirmed that GARRET MILLER has been ordered held without bond pending trial

 Miller's lawyer: He's been detained four months. We need to move. We'll have a week but that's it.

Judge Nichols: I appreciate the government has a lot of these cases and has to be consistent across the plea offers. But they have Speedy Trial rights 

Miller's lawyer: I've gotten all the discovery I need. Judge Nichols: Why shouldn't we move it more quickly?

AUSA Kelley: We're close to getting them a plea [offer.] It's only been four and a half months. We're talking an expansive view of our discovery obligations We've charged over 400 defendants and we're trying to be consistent with regard to the pleas we are offering. We are continuing to investigate other people. We've issued over 1400 search warrants.  AUSA continues: I'm going to get a plea offer out soon. Four and half months has not been unreasonable.

Miller's lawyer: She hasn't sat in solitary confinement for four and a half months. He's in a single defendant indictment. His case is not complex.

Judge Nichols: I understand. While it's a single defendant case, there are a lot of complications, the government has reasonable arguments why there has to be coordination. I'm not prepared to give 45 days. But one week is too short. I say, two weeks.

 Judge Nichols: I think Judge McFadden put one of these cases on the trial calendar for the Fall [Yes: Nicholas Rodean, 21-cr-57 (TNM)]

Miller's lawyer: It's not Ms. Kelly's fault -- Judge Nichols: The government cannot make a one-off plea offer.

Judge Nichols: How about June 9, 4 pm? Yes. Yes. Judge Nichols: I hope the government can get a plea offer out well in advance of June 9, so we can hear if it's a non-starter. 

We will have more on this.
